I'm a big fan of monuMental's work and really enjoyed his last wallpaper. In the event that we won, I asked his permission to alter it a bit and quickly came up with
this image these images tonight (including one eliminating the text in the center):
I don't have a great way to share the full resolution image yet, but if someone is very interested in having it then let me know and I will figure it out. Here's a photobucket link to the album - The images should be 1920 x 1200 resolution, but alas they were downsized by the Man. So here's a Skydrive link, that works better.
In case the above link bites, here is the text version and the no text version in 1600 x 1000 resolution. If all else fails, please leave a note here with a real or fake email for me to send you the full resolution image until I figure out something better.
As you can see
it is these are still a bit rough around the edges. I encourage you to look closely at the stitching monuMental did around the block "M" in the original!
Cheers and thanks to monuMental!
<< EDITED: added no text version and links - please let me know if they don't work >>
<< EDITED 2: New links for better resolution images >>
